Oh la laaa at Slide

unnamed

Did someone say oh la la? Ahhh oui, bien sur mon amie! Miss Feathers and her man were recently treated to quite a show at Slide’s Darling Take me to Paris recently. And her man, who didn’t quite know what he was getting himself in for had a lot of fun watching a troupe of Moulin Rouge style sexy ladies dance and sing, oh,... Read More

Getting all social – at the Gin Mill Social

IMG_4890

Slide is going all prohibition on us on Thursday nights. You’ll enter via the side door (so the cops don’t notice) and after pulling back the curtain, you’ll enter their Gin Mill Social drinking den. There’s the usual Slide style entertainment – burlesque performers, magicians, a guy balancing chairs on his chin, and some slightly different ones –... Read More

Sketch Me Happy – A Night of Burlesque Life Drawing at Dr Sketchy’s

Josie Farquharson

Burlesque shows and life drawing do not often go hand in hand. But after arriving at a packed venue on a Tuesday night that required pre-booked tickets, we knew we were in for something special, (particularly after we were handed a sketch pad and drink ticket at the door).   Pics by one of Miss Feather’s friendly crew: Josie Farquharson Dr... Read More

Who doesn’t love... Read More

The Art Lounge

IMG_0580

The Art Lounge gets my vote for the most romantic Sydney restaurant/ bar that I’ve ever been too (although the company did help). We were well and truly wooed, by the staff, the food, the night’s entertainment, the lush French decor and the cocktails. There are gilt framed artworks hanging on the walls (and even on the roof), loads of mirrors, plush chairs and ornate... Read More

Chaz Royal’s Big Top Burlesque Follies

Held on the 16th October 2010 @ 99 on York Advertising the show as “an extravaganza of Classic Burlesque and Circus Variety like no other” I have to say I had high expectations. However, yet again in Sydney, this show was largely let down by the venue. 99 on York is an RSL club. There were a few haphazardly placed plain tables with chairs around them, and that was it in the... Read More
